Dragon Ball references in other anime/manga

Post by SaintEvolution » Sun May 05, 2019 4:31 pm

I start the topic with this one from One Punch Man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oI0yFBY-rVs
Vaccine Man is clearly a reference to Piccolo. In english, german and mexican spanish dubs, both characters share the same VA's.
In the japanese original version, Vaccine Man is voiced by Ryusei Nakao, the original voice of Frieza, and in the brazilian portuguese dub, Vaccine Man is voiced by Wellington Lima, the brazilian voice of Majin Boo.

And even in One Punch Man, we have this scene as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-qlxoFrDaA
Witch is clearly a reference to Vegeta at 1:14.

I disagree. Vaccine Man is based on Baikinman, an antagonist from Anpanman, which is what One Punch Man was originally intended to be a a parody of.
Cool stuff that I upload here because Youtube will copyright claim it: https://vimeo.com/user60967147

It has similarities with him, as the voice as well (Ryusei Nakao). But somehow, it unintentionally ended to have similarities with Piccolo too.

I remember at the start of Yu-gi-oh, Yugi's showing the puzzle off and hopes it grants him a wish like the Dragon Balls.
